Thread: Hello from Arizona

    Hello everyone. I live in Prescott, Arizona and have only been quilting for a year. I attended a class to learn how to make my first quilt. Then I started getting together with a wonderful group of ladies once a week to do more quilting projects with their help. I find this hobby fascinating - just like painting with material. I love creating that way.
    I just discovered this group and started getting the messages. I went to the tutorial section and have already learned some great hints, especially for an easy pinwheel. Thank you for that!!
    My question is - I'm trying to find a pattern for a quilted jacket that I found at a rummage sale. It is a real quilt (not patches sewn on a sweatshirt). I love the pinwheel pattern blocks down the front of both sides. The rest is vertical panels. Does anyone know where I might find a pattern for that, or should I just copy what I see on that one?

    I have never seen that pattern for a jacket. It may have been an inspiration of the maker. The front looks like 1/2 square triangles sewn together.

    Try googling quilted jacket patterns. You will get lots of hits, maybe one will be this pattern if there was a pattern.

    Good luck!

    Hello from Western Maryland !!
    I have seen differnt quilted jackets, they are made from a really simple clothing pattern, & then lay out your blocks & panels to figure out placement on pattern pieces, you basicly make your fabric for the jacket. I would use a size larger than normally wear.
    I have made vest, many years ago.
    Hope this helps you in your search. :-)
    The jacket is very pretty !!

    Hi Linda, from Payson, AZ. We have a lady, Leslie Peacock, that teaches those jackets at the Community College here. They turn out just beautiful. I've made two coats and two vests but my family loves them sooo much, I've yet to get to keep one. I do know she sells her patterns for about $15 each. If you want furthur info, let me know...
    Smiles,
    Brenda

    Hi Linda, I live in Scottsdale most of the year. We try to summer in Prescott in order to avoid the worst part of the heat and humidity. Does the Prescott Quilting group have a website? Can someone participate seasonally? I would love to meet other Prescott quilters.
    The jacket is darling. If you have a background in sewing, you could make a tissue pattern to copy it.
    Thanks for sharing.
    JoAnn
